Xbox Austria leak gives early look at April's Games with Gold [Update: Confirmed]

Update: Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has now confirmed April's lineup, which packs in $84 worth of games and 4250 gamerscore.

An announcement for April's Xbox Games with Gold should be right around the corner, but a leak from Xbox Austria has given us an early peek at what to expect.

As reported by VG247, the now-deleted Facebook post from Xbox Austria shows that Xbox Live Gold subscribers are in for a treat with Ryse, The Walking Dead Season Two, Darksiders, and Assassin's Creed Revelations next month. Here's a look at the expected dates for each game:

  • Ryse - April 1-30
  • The Walking Dead Season Two - April 16-May 15
  • Darksiders (Xbox 360) - April 1-15
  • Assassin's Creed Revelations (Xbox 360) - April 16-30

That's not at all too shabby. Ryse in particular, which was an Xbox One launch title, should be a fun romp for anyone who only recently picked up the console. We should see an official April Games with Gold announcement in the near future, so we'll know soon if this leak holds up.

  • I hope not i have the Xbox one tittles
  • Yay for Ryse! I Game Fly'd it but never bought it hoping it would show up here soon.
  • I dont have any of those games. Cant wait!
  • I own everything except Darksiders, but I'm not interested in playing it....crappy bday month for me, lol!
  • Darksiders is a great game if you like puzzles and exploration in your action games.
  • Danksiders! Sweet! Bounced on my boys dick to that game back in the day. Can't wait to do it again.
  • This made me laugh hard.
  • I am so confused. You sound like paedophile.
  • Confirmed by Major Nelson : https://majornelson.com/2017/03/23/xbox-live-games-with-gold-for-april-2...
    I hope this means Assassin's Creed Brotherhood will also come to backward compatibility to complete the serie.
  • Finally. Ryse. Yayyyyy!!!!! Been waiting for this.
  • Neat, been wondering when Ryse would make it. Too bad it's right after MLB and Kingdom Hearts launch, maybe I can play it during the likely lull in the summer and fall.
  • Wow! Great April line-up. Can't wait to finally play Ryse.
  • I thought Ryse was a free game before. I have it and I know I didn't pay anything for it at the time.
  • I have them all....    I used to wait until games were on really good deals to buy them, thinking I got more than my money's worth, but now I'm starting to thinkg I should just play through my backlog and wait for the games to become free lol  
  • I've been waiting for TWD season 2 to become back compat forever. The free Xbox One game basically gives me that! Yay!
  • I love that they are giving away the entire Assassin's Creed collection. I had little interest in the games, but I've downloaded all of the free ones, so this will be a nice addition. And they're worth playing for free.
  • Been waiting patiently on Ryse. Good move MS.
  • wow
